MODERN EQUIPMENT REVIEW Modern Machine Shop 155 CMM Offered in Four Capability Packages Hexagon Manufacturing Intelli- gence's Global S coordinate mea- suring machine (CMM) series can be customized for specific inspec- tion work and changing manufac- turing objectives. Four capability packages focused on productivity drivers are available: Throughput, Precision, Multi-Purpose and Shop-Floor. Built on the company's Enhanced Productivity Series (EPS) concept, the CMMs use smart technologies and sensor configurations to streamline the creation, execution and analysis of measurement routines. EPS provides users with soft- ware and probe choices for their applications, as well as machine options includ- ing: the Compass vibration reduction system, which enhances machine scanning throughput and perfor- mance; the Pulse environ- mental monitoring tool; and machine messaging lights for visible notifications. The Throughput capa- bility package is designed to reduce measuring cycle times and increase produc- tion volume for mass pro- duction manufacturers. The Precision capability package is designed for measuring parts with tight tolerances and complex geometries. The Multi-Purpose capability package is a flexible solution for a variety of materials with different features and surface characteristics. The Shop-Floor package integrates measurements on the production floor and supports fully automated measurement, facilitating process optimization. Three pro- ductivity levels—Green, Blue and Chrome—are also available to suit a range of applications and budgets. | Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence | 800-343-7933 Search Machines Smarter.
